The Artist

Joseph Alexander Bluhm was born and raised in Laceyville, Pennsylvania, among his three talented brothers and wonderful younger sister. After attending the Cleveland Institute of Art (CIA), he spent four years professionally drawing live caricatures all over the country. Joe has been invited to teach his brand of the art to artists at more than a dozen locations in the US and Tokyo, as well as a two-time seminar presenter at the National Caricaturist Network (NCN) international caricature convention. Among his many caricature awards is the highest international caricature recognition, the NCN's 'Caricaturist of the Year' (2003).

Within those four years, Joe developed his editorial and promotional illustration and has already earned several prestigious awards, including the Association of Alternative Newsweeklies' (AAN) 'Cover of the Year' (twice), as well as multiple local illustration awards. His caricature illustration is utilized by top-billing comedians such as Frank Caliendo and Brian Regan. Joe also works in character design and visual development for animation and has had his designs featured on the top network's primetime television promo pieces.

Joe currently lives in New York City and works from his home studio in Queens.
